Re: BMW AUC haggling/negotiation

There's been a change recently in many chains where central offices are setting prices and not letting the dealers manage it. I bought an X5 last year and had the same message from many different chains. In the end I just held out for the right car and paid asking. Did manage to get a tank of fuel, ...

Carplay connectivity sequence? Need help!

Carplay has been working fine for ages now. On way home tonight it's sh*t itself and the car wouldn't connect with bluetooth or carplay at all. Deleted the phone from the car and deleted the bluetooth connection and carplay instance from the phone. Repaired bluetooth, but when it prompts me to allow...

Re: JB+ Known issues?

No hidden tuner code or CEL at all? Yes. I ran one on my M135i lci for 18 months, it does throw various codes. I only had the car in the garage once in that time and took it off the week before, cleared everything and then used it for the week. I know that's not EVERY trace of it, but I felt happie...

Tyres - PSS/PS2/4S - Which size?

Time to get new rears. I had been set on going for a 4S in a 275/30 size. But I've read concerns on the ride being harsh and also the softer sidewalls causing problems. I cannot find them in a 265/35 or a 275/35. Other option is the PSS in a 275/35, I've run PS2s on other cars before and liked them,...

Re: Options remorse?

My thoughts based on my car... HK, must have. (Or be prepared to go aftermarket) Electric seats, handy as both of us drive the car, pointless if it's only ever you. Reversing camera, never had one before this so didn't really want it. It's useful, but not essential. Folding mirrors, handy to see if ...

Fitted this Saturday. Goes nicely with the OEM Black Chrome Exhaust tips too.
Where did you get the OEM black tips? What car are they from? Cheers.

Re: M2 tyre pressure Contis

I find the idrive reads low. I run 2.4 all round. If I set to 34/35psi with a gauge then the car will see this as 2.2bar ish.

Re: BMW M2 vs Porsche Cayman 718

I almost went for a 718 S instead of the M2. Had one for the weekend from Porsche and loved it! My thoughts... Handling is immense. You can really feel the lower centre of gravity in its responsiveness. Was very direct. More so than the M2. Comfort was fine. The car I drove had pasm and it was good ...

Re: Crystal Serum vs Wrap

Slightly different products but I have Gyeon MOHS and Xpel Ultimate on my M2. The car was done with 100 miles on in early December. I had Xpel fitted to the front bumper and it's great. It's picked up a few knocks that would definitely have taken paint off if it wasn't there. in 7 months and 12k mil...

Re: A full on daily driver coming up!

Good work and good logic! I use mine as my daily and have done 11k since December! Yeah same here, we’ve probably got some of the higher mileage cars...

Re: M2 Competition PCP Quote

No way, 25K would be a just over 50% depreciation over 4 years, which already puts it ahead of the more typical 50% depreciation over 3 years. I can't see a private buyer spending more than 25K on a four year old M2. especially bearing in mind that the cars up to Oct 20 will be successively discoun...

Re: M2 Competition PCP Quote

This game is about cash flow as a four year old M2 Comp is going to be worth more than £25k. You just have to look at the total cost over a four year period. So you’re options are stomach the high payments now and recoup when it’s sold or pay less each month and get a regular M2 due to a higher GFV...
